FS: BMW e36 M3 GTS3/ BMWCCA IP prepped race car
Car is located in Raleigh, NC
Lowering for quick sale $18,500
really a steal at this price, but new baby on the way, and not going to race/track for awhile so I'll just get a cheap toy I can wrench on in the garage until I am "allowed" back out of the house for race/HPDE weekends. I can also throw in my 16' trailer with tire rack, dual axle, dual axle brakes for DIRT CHEAP with the car as a package. Car has not yet been log booked, because I have not, and will not be getting my BMWCCA license. but it is 99% ready to get one. I have had the car inspected by a local race shop that specializes in BMW's Ferraris and Alfa's and races 3-4 models of BMW's from 2002(the car not the year) and up and it received a clean bill of health minus the few "bads" below.

The car does not yet have a log book, because I have not gotten my BMWCCA license class yet. But the car was built to IP and GTS3 spec's.
This is a “short” list off the top of my head
I have built this car from the ground up, replaced every bushing and have not skimped on build quality 110% turnkey racecar.
The car is fast, quick and easy to drive!!!
The "bad" things that I would like to do or should be done.
Finish painting the rollcage, its about 80% done, but just have not had time with the new baby and my work schedule to finish it.
Crack along the bottom of the windshield, it is not in the field of view and has not run all the way across, I can have this replaced if its an issue for the buyer, but it has passed tech inspection with all the groups I run with. And seems to happen to every car I've owned when I run at Rockingham!
Small exhaust leak from the gasket where the midpipe and rear "cat back" section meet, just a cracked gasket and I will be fixing before the car is sold.
A few minor door dings and scratches, its a race car, not a show car, but Clean title and no major flaws or rust.
Only things currently NOT IP legal are.
headlight duct(i have a replacement headlight for when i was going to get the car inspected and logbooked so this is an easy fix.
need to drill out the steering wheel lock, again, i plan to do this before the car is sold.
LCA-Bearings, I ordered the nice Ground Control Delrin LCAB's(with the red anodized casing) and they sent me the spherical bearings instead, and I had an HPDE 2 days away so I installed them. I now have the delrin replacements and will provide them with the car. But have not pulled them off because the car has a fresh alignment on it.
Needs a right side window net
I have a lot of spares, here is just SOME of what i have.
Brake Booster, clutch slave, clutch master, brake master, extra brake pads, hawk blues, ferodo ds3000, new spares rotors, control arm, extra full metal balljoints, spare delrin LCAB's, pressure plate, 2-3 clutch disks, to name a few of the extras that will be included with the car.
I'll also include a spare Splitter/undertray or two, spare dive plates, and all my BMW "special tools" All the head/cam tools, etc
And wait there's MORE....
I will also include a bullet cam system for your in and out of car video. See the track video for examples of the setup.
Here is one pic I am currently uploading the rest come back soon!
You tube video on track from outside the car
I will also be adding a full HD "virtual tour" of the car, so you can see it from every angle!
Pics are just way to big, so here are links
Virtual Tour files HI-res HD Video

Either go complete street safety equipment or complete track safety equipment. Any compromise in between is not worth the danger. Once I drove on the track extensively the novelty of driving a race car on the street wore off quickly.

Yeah lights work and dash in still in, although as stated is has a full cage, could be made "street legal" for occasional street driving, but not something i would want to use as a DD. There are no cats either so depending on state that could be an issue too.
